The position paper titled "Drug Therapy for Severe, Chronic Pain in Terminal Illness" that appeared in the December 1983 issue (1) has been revised. Position 4 should refer to addiction rather than dependence. In addition, in the first full paragraph on page 872, hydrocodone is incorrect; the proper drug is hydromorphone. The corresponding reference (24) should be changed to the following: INTURRISI CE. Narcotic drugs. Med Clin North Am. 1982;66:1061-71.
